OK lets try another way.
Lets see what you have in your startup services area
Please click on
Start and then to Run
Type in msconfig and press Enter
Now click on Services
Click on the Hide All Microsoft Services
Then uncheck everything and restart.
If system boots correctly and is running smoothly and faster then we have a startup problem
Try going back into msconfig and check one item and reboot
Keep doing that till you have found the problem or all are finally checked.
Post back with the results

can't even be read. Some people think it has something to do with an Adobe Flash update, which I've never done. Any ideas? Thanks.

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

I've updated windows, java and adobe flash 4 times and it still does it. And I did a system restore to 2 days ago when it didn't do it and it still does it. The ads are flickering(flashing) continuously and the page flickers when I move the mouse over a hyper link. I've searched all over your site trying to find others who have had this problem and can't find any yet there's a lot of people on the web have had this problem and no ones has come up with a constant solution. Could it be a registry problem?

Another possibility is a hidden infection.
Maybe a messed up OS
